Change Is Afoot!

Change is afoot at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center … and underfoot! We’re installing new carpeting in the exhibit galleries, and we’re preparing the main gallery for our new exhibition, ILLUSION: Nothing Is As It Seems, making its North American premiere on May 10. To accommodate these improvements, we’ll be moving many exhibits to new locations within the science center. If you have trouble finding your favorite interactive exhibit, please ask a friendly gallery facilitator for help. Thank you for your patience as we create a more fantastic Fleet experience!


Spring Break Hours

From March 28 through April 20, the Fleet is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., giving you extra opportunities to explore the exhibits or take in an IMAX film.
